. the materials and financials gained 0.08%. the energy sector was up 0.07%. technology was the big drag, thanks once again to apple. over the past week apple has gone from almost $600 per share to $533, down about 9%. with the sell-off apple is about $8 above its most recent low from mid-november. there are several theories behind apple's stock drop: profit taking, disappointment over no special dividend, and more fundamental concerns about its business growth. two other big techs under some pressure today. microsoft fell 1%. it's just pennies ove its low for the year. cisco systems fell 0.07%. the firm repeated today its previous earnings growth forecast. big banks were on the upswing with the further improvement in the job market, and ahead of next week's federal reserve meeting as expectations build for more economic help. j.p. morgan jumped 2.6%, it's highest price since early november. bank of america added another 1.8% to an 18 month high. a big global energy deal is one step closer tonight. late today canada okayed the buyout of nexen energy by chinese energy giant c-nooc. this is a $15.
that getting into the energy business doesn't mean the company is turning its back on mining. under the deal, freeport will pay $6.9 billion for plains exploration and production and $2.1 billion for mcmoran exploration, a sister company it was separated from a couple of decades ago. the deal would also leave freeport with $20 billion of debt. freeport executives say getting into oil and natural gas would elp diversify the company and keep more of its assets in north america, where there's a huge shale gas boom. they estimate by next year freeport will derive a little more than a quarter of its profits from energy and the rest from mining, versus 100% from mining today. the company says it thinks demand for commodities, especially energy, will continue to grow. that could help offset the increased difficulty mining companies are having trying to find new projects in regions outside the u.s. and with interest rates currently at historic lows, the timing was right to ink the two deals. diane eaabrook, "n.b.r., chicago. >> tom: daniel rohr is a metals and mining analyst from morningstar and joi

[laughter] a hot stock to watch, and that's walter. when you look at walter energy, basically, we've been hearing that bhp billiton are said to be eyeing the coal producer, so this is according to british newspapers about whether or not anonymous sources are saying that bhp is stepping in. then there's others who are saying that it's glencore. everybody wants to take over walter industries, this is all, of course, just speculation that we're reading from the sources and on the wires, and that explains why you see this coal producer jumping 6%. big move for walter energy today, back to you. liz: nicole, suddenly the dow has doubled its gains, we were up about 14, 15 points, we're now up 31, 32. sandra, what are you looking at? >> i want to bring up an intraday chart, and while a 32-point gain isn't substantial, it is the highs of se

the middle of march. dennis: thank you. sandra smith is back with us. sandra: the big news is the energy information administration says they're expected rise in 2012 crude output would be the largest rice in output. since 1859, guys. this is what is attributing to this. yearyear-to-date period of over0 per barrel earlier in the year until now. all that is private business. this is how they explain the massive jump in output in the united states. resulting largely from a significant increase in onshore oil production particularly from shale and other formations. this is adding to the bigger output. right around $85 per barrel, prices had been coming down on an intraday basis. the reaction in the market, lots of volatility. we sold off hard on the news that is a very bearish for energy prices. we will see how things turn out, but it is a very bearish sign for the energy market. back to you. cheryl: thank you very much. house speaker ohn boehner saying the president has to get serious about the fiscal cliff talks. dennis: rich edson with the latest from there. >> as we have been reporting
of energy that's both cheaper and cleaner than coal or oil, talking about natural gas. but we end up burning off millions of cubic feet of it a day because we don't have enough demand since our government refuses to support embracing nat gas for service vehicles. while we probably aren't going to use it ourselves, last time we got good news in the form of a government report. commissioned by the department of energy that gave its blessing to the idea of exporting the fuel via liquefied natural gas terminals, it's a positive for the natural gas stocks. maybe the biggest beneficiary and you might not have thought of it, dominion resources, letter "d." it's a major utility for providing electricity to customers in west virginia, pennsylvania, and north carolina. the company used to have an oil and gas business but sold that off years ago at the top. dominion now is a gas ticker as they hope to build an export facility in maryland and it seems more likely this project will be approved in the wake of yesterday's pro nat gas report. the company has a history of raising the dividend to boot. and be

here. what is interesting when you have mergers and acquisition particularly in energy this is something that brings positive sentiment to wall street. let's look at freeport-mcmoran. also taking a look at other names that are involved, right? you're looking at, see how they are faring. plains exploration is up 25%. mcmoran exploration up 82%. freeport-mcmoran is buying both of those together. this is $9 billion. this is about oil and gas producers and it will create a natural resources conglomerate. this is a huge, huge move. freeport-mcmoran is a name we always took to when we talk about commodities and things on the move and on a day where oil and gold are to the downside, gold in particular talking about freeport-mcmoran, copper and gold. you can see it is down 14%. that is not unusual to see an acquirer selling off as the two that are being acquired are gaining big-time. this is the action we're seeing in this mining and oil and exploration type deal and this is a big one. certainly scooped up wall street this morning. back to you. melissa: nicole, thanks so much.
the latest in energies and metals. >> let's start with the metals market. that's where we're seeing significant gains, particularly in copper, after that positive data out of china. industrial production definitely better than expected. if you look at the factory order data, that was the highest output in november we've seen in about eight months' time. copper leading the gap ining th because of the chinese imports of copper. that was significant for that data. we're also looking at the oil import data coming out of china, the third highest on record. supporting oil prices. we're off of the highs for the session of crude oil but still looking at higher prices for brent and wti contract. but the biggest mover in the energy space today, definitely natural gas. because it's 60-degrees-plus in december today. possibly we'll see an injection to storage even though, yes, it is the month of december. that is the reason why traders are selling that gas right now. back to you. >> all right. thanks very much, sharon epperson. perhaps the largest dollar deal of the day, it is not a merger mond
on 108 earnings. you're looking at 1600. should benefit the financials. energy is a wild card next year. that's what we should be allocating. >> rick, if we go over the fiscal cliff, you have to believe there will be a lot of hoarding of assets, sitting on money. maybe we get more action and fixed income. >> i think what nobody is talking about, you with allude to it constantly, and i'm in your camp. the damage is done. it's evident by many of these reports. even if they come up with a 13th hour settlement, even if they come up with good reform, some of the adjustments that have already been made or have been in the process of being made have already done a lot of damage that we didn't need. we already shot ourselves in the foot on this one. in terms of housing, you know, the shadow inventory that's been tied up in litigation, we could see as many as 20 million of those come on the market in 2013. even though i agree with the guest, there's a lot of different forms of the housing market. some of them are going to be under pressure due to this avalanche of shadowed foreclosure in 2013. >
markets, energy, and medical. it has already caused this uncertainty, roadw uncertainty, a reduction in the amount of work we're doing, and it's prevented us from hiring in some of our plants. >> you're holding back, then. you're holding back on hiring, waiting to see how this thing plays itself out. presuming they don't go over the cliff, they come to some agreement, does that mean you would hire more workers? >> right now it's very frustrating that we don't have issues decided here. so, yes, we have plants that can be ramping up to supply in the defense industry. until we know with certainty what's going to happen with the cuts, we're not going to be hiring in those plants. >> we're going to bring in now howard dean, who i believe is joining us. thank you for joining us. i hope that you've also been listening to what dawn had to say. she's been basically saying it would hurt her company. it's already affecting her hiring decisions. it would hurt the defense industry as well. so why do you feel that going over the fiscal cliff would be good? >> we have an enormous deficit problem in
sectors, industrials up fractionally. energy stocks okay. tech, materials a tough week to the downside, weighed down by apple which lost about $50 so far this week. financials were the big gainers. big comments this week about job layoffs but most of those big names were up again today. these stocks have turned around here. bank of america now well north of $10. home builders having a very rare down week. but up a little bit here today. i anticipate 30% increase in orders next week. kb home also to the up side. horton announces a dividend acceleration earlier today. finally noting here, courtney just mentioned apple and there you see apple down -- apple was $585 at the start of the week. that's $50 off of apple this week. >> the dow is higher today. we'll go up town in a moment to the nasdaq and seema. could you imagine what the dow would be doing this week if the apple were in it? the dow is a price weighted index. >> that's why it would not be in it. they'll have to do some kind of split of apple to put it in there. $600 -- >> can you imagine? >> $50 right now would have dropped hund
of this despite weakness in apple, this group continues to perform very, very well. energy stocks higher earlier, drifting lower, that has the dow's lead from the highs of the session. lastly we want to note that dovert corporation, took the stock down a couple of points. >> no t.o. the nasdaq now, everybody is talking about apple once again down here, but there is a lot more happening at the nasdaq than just apple today. >> absolutely. but let's lead with apple. jeffries hitting the take. could see decelerating growth, negative, margin leverage. elsewhere in tech, we are seeing green across the screen. hp, rising speculation that carl icon is interested in the company. that stock is outperforming today. lastly, the tablet wars heating up. barnes & noble named as part of barons top ten favorite stocks for 2013. the nook reader unit is holding its own against amazon and apple and these developments are not reflected in shares of bks. that's why you can see barnes & noble trading around 6%. sue? >> seema, thanks. rick san tellry is tracking action at the 162 on ten-year. what are they watching tod
